The flat iron device for measuring changes in conductivity

By McKee S and Cuminato J


This note proposes an alternative to both the "transient hot-wire method" and the "transient hot-strip method". A mathematical model is developed and an analytic solution is provided. The "flat iron device" may have advantages for rapidly measuring changes in conductivity, as can occur in food products
